Cartoon of the Day: Short-Run, Long-Run

Incumbent Democratic Senator Byron Dorgan may have a serious problem on his hands if Republicans recruit Governor John Hoeven to run for the U.S. Senate in North Dakota next year.

The first Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 telephone survey of likely voters in North Dakota finds the popular Republican governor leading Dorgan by 22 points – 58% to 36%. Just six percent (6%) are undecided in that senatorial contest.

Part of the challenge for Dorgan is the health care legislation working its way through Congress. Dorgan, along with every Democrat in the Senate, has voted to move the legislation forward and is expected to vote for final approval of the reform later this week. That’s not likely to be well received in North Dakota where just 30% favor the proposed health care reform plan and 64% are opposed.


Hope and Change.

I hope that you are right but you were posting polls showing the bill didn't have a chance and was losing support weekly. And now it has passed.

It seems that politicians are becoming more and more like whores. They will do ANYTHING for a price. How corrupt do our politicians have to become before the people realize how much freedom we are losing.

Steve, that's exactly what this cartoon is saying. The bill has steadily lost the support of the American voter, and yet the Democrats have passed it anyway. The 2010 elections are not so far away that this will be forgotten.
